Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea were one of the teams tipped to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The title contenders were thrashed 3-0 by Leeds United, hours before Manchester City’s 3-3 draw against Newcastle United, an opponent we beat 5-0 last season.

According to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat to Leeds United is proof that the Premier League is getting difficult for everyone.

“Leeds beat Chelsea today. The Premier League is so difficult for everyone,” Guardiola said in post-match comments to Sky Sports.

“It shows how amazing we’ve done for five years and how difficult it will be. To see the team fight to the end is enough.”
